I’m not one to start haranguing you in February to go spring shopping (like some magazines, OK, almost all magazines, do). But it was so warm last week that I panicked, thinking if I didn’t get my spring shopping post up, you might give in and pop into a store like Forever21 or Gap to grab something fun and new.
Don’t do it! I’ve worked hard this week on putting together 10 spring and summer outfits made of nothing but sustainable and ethical clothing for you. Look how easy it is to look super cute and fresh, without shopping at Zara! Who knew?
I did. And now, so do you.
